Get To Know Mary

Are you a member with Women in Trucking?

Yes.

What are your hobbies?

Motorcross and riding horses.

What can Trinity Logistics do to help you succeed?

Keep up the transparency and great communication. I never have to wait to get help with my questions while working with Trinity.

What are your thoughts on gender diversity? What have you done to promote more women in trucking?

Over my 20 years in the business, I did not see many women in the industry back then, but now I see a lot more. I also am the owner of the company and when I have more than one truck I like to hire women drivers.

What are safety tips you may use in the field?

I use the Smith System to prevent accidents.

Are there any areas that you will not travel due to safety or how you are treated?

Yes. I like to park at shippers and receivers more than truck stops.

What do you like about being a truck driver?

The freedom and independence.
